Comment on Breast Cancer in Science

I’ve just had a small comment on breast cancer published on Science’s website. The comment is in reply to an interesting article discussing over-treatment in ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS: a type of cancer that is contained in the milk duct). My comment is reprinted below. Unfortunately Science’s website submission system mucked up some of the letter (formatting etc.) but no matter as it can be read here:

Machine Learning for Semi-Automatic Segmentation of Breast Lesions from MRI

I have recently had another journal article published on machine learning. This one is focused on a machine learning formulation I developed as a simplification of a technique I published earlier on - you can access information on the earlier publication here. The technique I have just had published (accessed from here) is a machine learning based tool for radiologists allowing them to delineate (or segment) a suspicious lesion from a breast MRI examination with a few seconds of user interaction to define tissue they are interested in analyzing further and tissue that is not of clinical significance.
